We frequently feature “pre-order” Logos specials here on the Academic Blog, as well as “pre-pub” and “community pricing.” But what exactly is pre-order, pre-pub, and community pricing, and why should you be buying books this way? And, how will this new Pre-Order Preview series benefit you as a reader of this blog (if you’re not yet signed up, drop your email here)?
Pre-order items are already in production; pre-pub and community pricing products will be produced once enough interest is gathered. Community pricing also allows you to have a say in the price you pay. Basically, you’re getting in early while the book is being prepped, tagged, and hyperlinked for the Logos digital ecosystem (which is insanely efficient!).
All three of these programs present an opportunity to purchase new resources from the world of academic publishing, in theology and biblical studies, before they are published in the Logos digital library, at a price that is often very competitive with retail (to compare all three, visit this page).
Our new Pre-Order Preview series is your window to resources that are close to shipping, so that you can get in on the pricing benefit. So it’s to your advantage to sign up to the Academic Blog email list and stay informed!
For this first Pre-Order Preview, here are four resources shipping in the next few days:
Four Views on Heaven (Counterpoints) – Four Views on Heaven brings together a well-rounded discussion and highlights similarities and differences of the current views on heaven in light of the current debate spearheaded by scholars such as N. T. Wright and J. Richard Middleton.
Milestones in New Testament Scholarship (2 vols.) – Milestones in New Testament Scholarship provides a unique look at the lives and work of interpreters who have significantly influenced New Testament studies over the last two centuries.
